LG TV Magic Remote Turn on/off the Pointer 2019 Smart TV’s

I really like the LG Magic remote but Some people get distracted or confused by the pointer. The 2019 range has made it easier to immediately disable the pointer. On previous LG TV’s the pointer would come on as soon as you move the remote, this no longer happens and it’s a welcome improvement.

This has been tested on 2019 M series LG TV’s.

    Yes, you can permanently disable this feature, but you will need for that 2 the same magic remotes.
    First step: register one magic remote with your TV (press OK).
    Second step: put that first registered remote in storage and simple use your second UNREGISTERED magic remote with your TV. Annoying pointer will never appear on your screen again.
    You can safely press all the buttons on your second remote including OK – no pointer will appear again. Enjoy!

    SOLUTION: Go to "accessibility" and turn on "audio guidance", this will disable the cursor and still allow you to make selections. Turn the volume to to the lowest setting. If you are using tv speakers, you'll just have to deal with it. If not, change the audio output to one that is not in use.

    I use headphones which receive audio from my PS4, which is completely separate form the TV speakers. Your options will depend on your audio setup

    I had bought a brand new LG 55"UHD 4K SMART TV, and noticed it turns on my other TV set in the kitchen, which I dont want, how do I turn off this setting, so when I turn on the new TV only that one turns on and not the kitchen TV set?
